Bong Joon Ho’s
2013 bleak sci-fi thriller Snowpiercer
is a compelling story of humanity and class set in a dystopian future where the last survivors of humanity exists on a roamin train. Calling into question the divide between rich and poor, Bong Joon Ho
forces the audiences to carefully consider the real world class-divide that exist in many countries, where the gap is more a chasm than a crack. The film was adapted from a 1982 graphic novel called Le Transperceneige
, which painted a very different story from the film. And if you’re sitting there right now thinking ” I wonder what the differences are between film and comic?” , well think no more, as CineFix
are here with another addition of ‘What’s the Difference?
‘ to break down the mediums own little divide. Here is Snowpiercer – What’s the Difference?
Bong Joon Ho’s Parasite is taking the world over, but in 2013 the Korean filmmaker ended the world with his dystopian action masterpiece, Snowpiercer. Set on a train carrying the last of humanity around a planet in the midst of a self-made ice age, Chris Evans leads a revolution against the trains elite class. While the film shares plenty with the 1982 graphic novel Le Transperceneige on which it’s based, Bong Joon Ho aims his satire in a different direction. So tuck into a protein bar and find your place on the train because it’s time to ask What’s the Difference?
